This movie had me within the first 10 minutes. This review is tainted by my appreciation for Coppala* and various works from Orson Wells, Alain Resnais, Woody Allen, and Vittorio De Sica to name a few... What a visual feast; if it had nothing more it would be worth your $10-spot. But it delivers a literary metaphoric trance-educing tale as rich as gold. Don't miss it.
